You really need to see this:

 

 

Looks and sounds AMAZING!

 

Note the 7k redline same as the E400. That's a shame as I was hoping for a higher redline than the current cars. But love the TFT tach. What a weapon!

it's already being held up by £140k's worth of 991 GT3RS! Porsche drivers better get used to the view in their mirrors. While many people seem to think the 311 is expensive, I don't think GT3RS owners will.

I was a member of his Pit Crew when he raced an Exige in the N24 a couple of years back*. He certainly knows his way around there by now!

It does look like it is on rails going through those corners......

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Would that be time when Roger 'fireball' Green performed the quickest ever exit of an Exige known to humanity?!

OK, thanks Bibs - as I said I'm a noob and was just interested but it makes sense, I guess this is not the "standard" road setup they were using but the track one.

Thanks for improving my understanding / knowledge of things mechanical. ;)

 

tall first gear also, probably goes up to about ~70mph in 1st.

A ha.  So now we know who left the fuel cap off to spill on hot bits.   :getmecoat:

 

Apart from that does anybody else think from some angles it reminds me a bit like Ronin's modified 211 over in California?  That isn't a bad thing by the way.

When the helicopters started following I did have a look around on the floor for it! Gladly it was securely stuck in the place it should be on the car...

Better than the Lotus factory Evora 400 sales website already!  Excellent.

I have a few photos on my harddrive from when I was at the Ring. Do I have to upload them to a hosting site and link them to here?

Very nice car but a bit OTT for a toy when you add up the extras especially £3,500/£4,000 for a paint job. Not a lot of car to paint !!

Also how come a carbon seat for the driver is  £800 but for the passenger  £2,000 surely a mistake 

£2,500 for 2 way dampers and £2,500 for a fire extingusher, come on Lotus get real

?? Cow much!! Agreed, stunning and I'd do almost anything for one but v expensive toy!!

The carbon seats price is a bit weird.. but it's probably the drivers seat that's too cheap maybe? Carbon seats in a prancing horse are more than double the pax seat in the 3-11...

Extras are scandalous but you have the success and profitability of the Germans to thank for that. Even the Japanese have abandoned the 'fully loaded as standard' policy. Lotus were one of the last few with more reasonably priced extras and guess what, they need to increase the margin on every car and look what happened next! The Germans started it but the Italians ran with it, you can put £80k worth of options on a Ferrari 488!

Given the 311 will kick it into next week for the price of some options you have to reconsider what's being offered here. With the BAC Mono's price being hiked from around £85k to £150k basic, the 311 is starting to look better value. Shame the fast car market comprises mainly of posers who can't drive, I think the sight of a BAC Mono in London would reduce me to tears! We're it otherwise Lotus would be placed to do quite well with the 311.

My guess with the seats, and it is pure speculation, but could it be that you only get one seat as standard so going for one carbon drivers seat gets you some money back for your grp seat?
